Incidental Learning, Distraction, and Sustained Attention in Hyperactive and Control Subjects.
Aman, Michael G.; Turbott, Sarah H.
Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, v14 n3 p441-55 Sep 1986
Thirty-two hyperactive children (ages 5-11) and 32 controls were tested on (1) a component selection task, measuring serial memory and incidental learning and (2) a cancellation task, assessing attentional variables and distractibility. It was concluded that a deficit in sustained attention and impulsivity best described the group differences. (Author/JW)
